to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal wit

. >> here's one detail. the ryan budget is dependent on repealing obama care which is all about guaranteed not to happen. so how realistic is it, congressman, that a budget is put out there that can never actually be implemented. >> it's increasingly apparent. it's not affordable. the affordable care act is basically costing too much. premiums going up too fast and i think we should dial them back or delay implementation. >> so do you agree that obama care is not going to be repealed? your jouft looking for an amendment to that? >> well, i have to tell you there's no question that implementation is not going to occur on time. in fact, one of the career folks over at hss, in front of one of the meetings in washington last week, i should say, said that he's hoping that it doesn't end up as a third world plan. the implementation is seriously problematic and don't pretend that it doesn't need to be addressed. >> you're actually a great person to talk about this. as i mentioned, you were also a medical doctor. i want to get your reaction to something that representative michele bachmann said ab

's left left of barack obama on drone strikes. he's to the right of paul ryan on budget cutting. he won't say directly i'm running for president. it would be crazy to say it at this point but he wants to be part of the conversation and he certainly leaves the presidential door wide open. >> we'll check out the program. always good to see you, chris. have a great sunday. don't miss the exclusive interview, kentucky senator rand paul with chris only. you have to watch "fox news sunday. accounts he's speak the to nicolle wallace and gary bauer. >> rand paul. quite fascinating. >>> new developments in the battle against leukemia and news on dementia and an update on losing weight with liposuction. doctors are here for a sunday house call in just a moment.

with you, 5:00 a.m., the senate passes a budget. the house has already passed a budget. very stark differences between the two, everyone waiting for president obama to weigh in on this. i guess my question to you is, despite those stark differences, do you see this as the beginning of negotiations toward a compromise? >> i frankly take this as a constructive sign. it gives the guidelines for the senate to go pass appropriations bill. under what's called protection. they don't require 16 votes. and this sets up, then, the normal flow of congress. with house passing the budget with less spending. senate democrats passing a budget with more spending and

of barack obama when it comes to drones, on the other hand, you are to the right of congressman paul ryan, whose budget you oppose, voted against this weekend, in the senate, because you say that it doesn't cut the budget balance -- budget fast enough. do you think there is room for a realistic, feasible presidential candidate who is to the left of obama on some issues and to the right of paul ryan, on other issues? >> i think we have a confusing spectrum, the left-right spectrum doesn't always work for people but because of the confusion it shows that someone like myself, i think, could appeal to young people, independents and moderates, because, many of them do think it is a mistake to put people in jail for marijuana use and throw away the key. so, i think there are people who would like a less aggressive foreign policy and there are all kinds of issues that don't neatly left in the left-right paradigm that i think would help, because we're not doing very well in a lot of these states, purple and blue states and we need a candidate that would appeal across the left-right paradigm. >> c
